This, This Is How Brewery Tours Should Be

I’ve been on a lot of brewery tours.  All over this great nation of ours.  And more in the great state of Cackalacky than the rest of the Union combined.  Over one hundred for shark.  I’ve even given one!  ONE!

Though this isn’t technically a tour its still how all tours should be conducted.  It would reduce the amount of tour revenue each brewery could make, but I’m willing to bet it would more thank make up for it in customer AND employee satisfaction.


Becoming a beer steward: a day to kind of learn, more than a day to master


Alcoholic Hydration

I am not a doctor, damnit, stop calling me doctor!

But I do get most of my hydration from beer.  I haven’t done a scientific study but, I drink a little water when I wake up at night with a dry throat, a lot of coffee constantly throughout the day and then beer once I’m done with my coffees (around 8).

I exercise semi-regularly and its awful.  But not because of the lack of hydration, its because I’m fat and only workout SEMI-regularly.  And my “workouts” consist of a 100 yard jog followed by a 10-minute walk.  Whatever, I’m in bad shape for a doctor…

Anyway, months ago I heard about this.  I drink beer prior to and during and after physical activity so I’ve never questioned the hydrating ability of beer.

What is your favorite beer to drink before, during, and after physical activity?  I used to run about 7 (6.72) miles a day, so I would have 2 Busch tall boys before running, none during (couldn’t find anyone to meet me with cold beer), and 2 again immediately afterward to ‘feed my muscles’.

Anyone wanna workout?


The Best Medicine


I’m Drinking:  Busch

So, I read this story.  That’s all I have to say about it, I read it.

But what I really want to know is, what type of beer do you reach for to settle your stomach?

What’s that you say?  You don’t drink beer to settle your stomach?  Well you’re dumb.

I usually reach for a sour, something almost vinegar preferably, when my tummy is queasy.  If I have indigestion I go for something light like Busch.  And if I need to poop I drink something super bitter.

Any alcoholic first aid to share?

Charlotte’s Web

I’m Drinking:  Busch

I wish I had a Charlotte like that pig did.  Zuckerman’s famous pig.

I haven’t read or seen the story in a long time.  But Wilbur is the name of the pig right?  Zuckerman’s famous pig is Wilbur.

Just to get this out of the way, Wilbur isn’t meant for the butcher.  He is also not meant for the pig milk farm.  Wilbur is immortal.  Wilbur is mine and everyone else’s favorite pet forever.

Who likes Charlotte?  That’s a spider, okay.  Whoever likes Charlotte has some issues.  Spider issues.  I have Charlotte issues.  Growing up my best friend had a sister named Charlotte and we called her Char Char.  She was older than us and I was in love.*

Who likes Wilbur?  If you don’t LOVE Wilbur then you are heartless and have no chance with Charlotte.  (If you don’t have a retort that involves pepper we aren’t interested.)


* Charlotte is still her name.  She is alive and wonderful.  I’m sure if I saw her I would be lost for words.**

** I’m unsure on all of this except one thing…I want a Gamburger with Day Day and uncle Joey in BR.
